Slipknot to Start Recording New Album Next Month
A follow-up to 2008’s All Hope Is Gone has been rumored since 2008, with multiple delays and band members taking their time since bassist Paul Gray’s death. However, according to an interview frontman Corey Taylor gave in Kerrang recently, Slipknot is on the path to recording a new album this time – and they’re expected to start just next month.
Taylor told the magazine that Slipknot has 17 demos prepared to record. The sound, he further went onto describe, should be like their strongest two releases, Iowa and Volume 3.
Going onto speak about the lyrics, he said: "I've written lyrics for everything that we have right now and it's feeling pretty good. It feels like the story of the band so far, which is a totally different take on what I've been used to writing with Slipknot, but I think because of everything we've been through, it's time to tell that story. It's going to be everything you want in a Slipknot album, and everything you wouldn't expect."
Since Gray’s death, drummer Joey Jordinson departed Slipknot this past December. Jordinson was careful to explain that the group isn’t splitting up and that he’s still involved to some extent.
All Hope Is Gone, the band’s last full-length studio album, came out nearly six years ago to positive reviews. The release topped the Billboard 200 chart and reached No. 2 on the U.K. Albums chart.
